Go for GOLD at Olympic Park!
Want to get your adrenaline pumping and conquer your fear of heights? Then we have the perfect challenge for you!
Join us on Saturday 25th August 2018 and take part in the UK’s highest freefall abseil from the Orbit tower in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. You can feel like an Olympic champion and help your local hospice at the same time!
Abseiling down the Orbit – the UK’s tallest sculpture – is the adrenaline-fuelled way to see London at 262 feet above the city.
Wire and Sky provides trained professional instructors who give a comprehensive safety briefing and provide all the specialist equipment required before escorting you to the upper viewing platform at the ArcelorMittal Orbit. From there, you begin an exhilarating descent to the ground, taking in breathtaking 20-mile vistas across London, including iconic buildings such as The Gherkin, St. Pauls, Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium, as well as the world-famous sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Please note: participants must be 16 years and over, a minimum height of 1.2m and a maximum weight of 19 stone. Please also note that you can not take part if you are pregnant.
Weather warning: Please note the abseil is dependent on the weather and prevailing wind. Wire and Sky will only run the abseil if it is safe to do so, and abseils can be cancelled at the last minute due to wind. If this is the case, your abseil will be rescheduled for the nearest date possible that is convenient to you.
